Dark Souls III PS4 PlayStation 4 E3 2015

Your skin may still be pale following Bloodborne's punishing campaign, but sources have told VG247 that Dark Souls III will be announced at E3 2015 next month. The sequel – which may debut during Sony's press conference – will apparently be directed by creator Hidetaka Miyazaki, which is a surprise considering that he just wrapped up work on the aforementioned PlayStation 4 exclusive. However, if this is true, we wouldn't expect it to release until at least Holiday 2016.

Bandai Namco is the publisher of the Souls series, so it's likely that this will be a multiformat release like its predecessors. However, with the role-playing game crowd very much on PlayStation these days, it's reasonable to expect Sony to put its finger-prints all over this purported product. With downloadable content for Bloodborne confirmed to be in production, this does seem like strange timing. Having said that, we reckon that we're just about ready to die all over again.
